The customer came to Digex Co. with a new experimental method for cancer detection by a blood test. Thrive team mostly consisted of scientists and doctors but they lacked IT expertise. And to work with pharma companies and labs, a practical understanding of pharma subject was needed.
Leading Digex Co. developers have implemented several similar projects. We have many years of expertise in cooperation with well-known Merck KGaA. Based on our vast experience, we offered a complex IT solution with several components.
LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System)
LIMS system was developed for customer’s needs. It manages lab data which channels lab studies and documents. This system optimizes lab data collection, analysis, return, and reporting. There is a strict recording of every test tube activity, including initial processing and constant tracking. The system is integrated with popular Enterprise Medical Record (EMR) solutions. EMR systems are widely used among various medical providers. EMR stores medical records, interactions with doctors and studies and related to each patient.
Integration with Epics, Sampleminded, Redox
Digex Co. development team integrated LIMS system with a number of pharma solutions used by Thrive. Among these solutions are Sampleminded, Redox and EPICS IT systems. These software programs have a limited use in the pharma industry. For example, EPICS is a program for development and management of particle accelerators, telescopes, and other big experimental units.
Big Data Analysis Module
After using LIMS, a data bulk is generated. Numerous results of substances interaction are taken into account. Detailed DNA sequencing is carried out using expensive and exclusive equipment. A blood test report is generated along with DNA analysis. Big Data module developed by Digex Co. collects the data into a bulk using Thrive's methodology.
Qualified data enters a neural network. The data is processed via mathematical models based on know-how method for determining the chances of cancer. Digex Co. has set up a process to coordinate work of Big Data module with a neural network. Camunda BPM engine runs models through all scenarios using a neural network and outputs data for final reports.
Electronic Reports Module
Obtained data and values are verified by Thrive medical specialists. After confirmation, a report is generated in a special module developed by Digex Co. The report module collects data and generates a document that meets international medical and pharma requirements. The report indicates the data of a patient, a doctor and a medical provider that ordered this study.
